"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Trains And Planes


It will soon be time to re-pack my bags.
Almost two months have passed since I left India:
A happy time, but one punctuated by seemingly countless hours of train and plane journeys.

    I don’t think that I should ever want to leave India if I lived there. Travel, nowadays, is not as charming as it used to be. Safe home!

    • But it’s nice to escape the worst of the monsoon, when I can be trapped indoors for days at a time..

  3. Good photo! I like the sign “Way out”, and it looks like everyone has left, perhaps on that jet reflected in the glass roof. And this is all framed by that saturated blue to the left and right and top.

    • Thank you: the blue framing required a little judicious image cropping!
